So look at what I found today:  I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much.  Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable

My battle with health insurance- Day 2

My neurologist sent the pharmacy the justification for my need of the anti-seizure medicine yesterday afternoon. The pharmacy didn't get around to getting it to the health insurance until today.
